Newwriters.com's mission statement: To provide exposure for those writers who burn with the desire to write but have not yet been published.

What are we all about? Newwriters.com is an Internet service through which we display works of new writers on our web site. We provide a vehicle for interested Internet users and others to view, by means of synopses, your unpublished novels, plays, poetry, short stories and non-fiction material supported by a short biography. Our register offers submissions in any language. We keep the cost low by not getting too fancy.

You've probably been bothered by countless self-proclaimed literary agents who have suddenly discovered you and want to work with you. Usually this involves a substantial up-front sum for preparation of a "business plan" or some other ruse. Often they work with a "book doctor" who, upon the recommendation of the bogus literary agent, offers to help you rewrite your work to make it "more acceptable for publishers." They also provide a convenient credit card plan and accept all major credit cards.

Honest literary agents do not solicit in this devious manner. They are busy enough with their regular clients and rarely accept new, first-time authors. Publishers too are difficult to reach. Your only chance is the old fashioned, two-way mailing routine, which is not only expensive but usually non-productive. Newwriters.com offers them a chance to see what's out there quickly and efficiently. If a synopsis strikes their fancy, they can take the next step by filling out the on-line form provided directly on our web site. Newwriters.com is able to screen requests for validity and to send the information as well as your particulars to them. From then on, it's up to you.

What will it cost? The following straightforward approach should appeal to any writer who has sent endless manuscripts "over the transom" without success. While we cannot and would not offer any guarantee of getting published, we think that our unique approach stands a reasonable chance of having many people see what your work is all about. In truth, though millions of people are connected to the Internet, the actual number of persons viewing your work would probably be in the thousands. At any rate, potentially many more agents and editors could see your work through this service than you could reach by conventional means.
